Wye River Upper School offers a high-quality college-preparatory education to smart, capable students who may learn differently. Those differences might include dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety or other learning challenges. A big part of our success comes from the fact that helping students with learning differences isn’t a piece of what we do—it’s everything we do, every hour of every day throughout the school year.
Lesson plans, daily schedules, class sizes (most have 6 to 8 students), classroom configurations, desk arrangements, and the nature of learning itself—hands-on, active, engaging—all are designed with the needs of our students in mind.
We’re located in a revitalized historic building in Centreville, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and we attract students from both sides of the Chesapeake Bay—from Annapolis, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore as well as from neighborhoods in our backyard.
Daily bus service to and from seven communities in Maryland and greater D.C. helps ease transportation challenges. Our strong program of financial aid helps minimize financial obstacles. Our vision is that every student who can benefit from a Wye River education has the opportunity to learn here.
What happens here is transformational. We invite you to take a closer look.
